As Alan points out, it looks like silly season will be in full swing. Here is a site claiming it will check the top web sites in the world, and if 5% aren't responding at 1 minute before midnight (pick your time zone) a major disaster has happened. http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/991222/inferno200_1.html As has been pointed out before, many sites plan to shutdown their web sites or disconnect from the Internet over the New Year's weekend. Which I guess is a self-fulling prediction. The Internet is still considered an "extra" and not a necessary connection like the telephone or ATM. I haven't heard anyone suggesting they would turn off their ATMs, even though they are Y2K ready, just to be safe. You can read ATM as representing either acronym.
